Though Eballi comes off as a grump most of the time, she can be easily befriended if you aren't some jerk. (Also be warned, if you lose her trust, it's hard to get it back). She shows disinterest and unamusement with most things, though when something gets her interest, she can't help but to get curious.
She is a tough cookie, but sometimes deadly looking stuff like knives and chainsaws can make her nervous. Speaking of sharp things, Eballi loves to joke around and lie about her prosthetic arm once in a while- well, only when she's bored and wants some amusement. She also tends to be very sarcastic and sarcastically complains about things often.
Contrary to most belief, she actually likes to have fun and won't turn down an opportunity to do so. And her kind of fun involves poking fun at people/things or just doing something that will amuse her. As said, boredom is her enemy and she will literally drop to the floor in boredom. She dreads not having anything to do and will constantly busy herself with chores if she has to. (That's how desperate she gets to get out of boredom, god forbid what happens if you leave her in a room with no exit)
Eballi lived happily in some city near the Saros region. She only had a single father, so she adopted some masculine traits and striven to be as tough as her father. Her first pokemon was a karrablast named 'Xavier', whom she acquired in her backyard. The pokemon was friendly enough to approach and become buddies. Eballi had a rather normal life until an accident happened.
She was only 9 when a toxic waste spillage happened at the local power plant, and she accidentally got caught in it with Xavier. The harmful chemicals infected her right arm, and proved to be life threatening to her health. She had to get it amputated before the poison spread, and ended up with a prosthetic arm at the young age.
Though the arm amputation went by painlessly because of aesthetics, the experience made Eballi quite cold and disliking of poison-type pokemon. During her times growing up as a kid she became embarrassed about her arm and angsty. She became quite reclusive, and her only best friends at the time were a school-boy and Xavier.
The school-boy helped her become more outgoing again, and after hanging around him for a long time, she began to regain confidence. It was then that she developed the habit of rolling up her sleeves, since she was no longer afraid of showing her arms. Since then she brightened up.
When she was old enough, Eballi left her home to live in Corus. She settled near her Aunt who lived there for years. After a year of settlement, she took part in the first Saros tournament. But due to some events that happened in the competition, she doesn’t like to talk about it.
Now she currently works in her Aunt's Antique Shop and Restoration Services as an assistant. It is a decent and very stable job, so Eballi is quite content. She currently enjoys her casual life (albeit it can get boring every so often) and still gets to travel with her aunt to go restore stuff sometimes.
She is looking forward to being a spectator to this year's tournament.
> She loves pastries and goes to bakeries often to oogle over the baked goods.
> Wears a pendant given to her by her best friend. It is rare to see her with it.
> Has 3 other pokemon, though they stay at home and won't be used in events. (Doug the Sawsbuck, Gentleman the Relicanth, and Rocky the Aerodactyl)
> Her real name isn't "Eballi" She just chose that nickname and prefers not to reveal her real name because of unknown reasons.
Eballi adores all her pokemon, even though most of them have a lot of problems. She acts somewhat motherly over most of them and raises them with a tough fist. She still likes to battle once in a while, but prefers a spar over an all out battle.

Xavier is very close to Eballi since they both suffered through the toxic accident together. Their bond was stronger after the incident, and grew to become impenetrable. He is all about safety and will occasionally give safe advice whenever needed, and is always careful. Eballi likes to give him hugs!
>He has some light blotches on his exposed right arm- scars from the poisonous accident.
> Has lots of scratches from battles.

This monkey is highly mischievous, and messes with people/pokemon as much as it breathes air. If you could count how many beings he pissed off, it would probably be more than 439205. He loves to goof off and doesn't know when to stop messing around. Kong only listens to Eballi and treats her like 'mama eballi'.
He gets scold at a lot.
>He mostly likes to mess with Tala since she has a short fuse.
> Even annoys pokemon on the battlefield as a part of his strategy and fighting style.

A little quick temperedAbility: Inner FocusMoveset:
Endure, Bounce, Meditate, ReversalMisc:
When Eballi first met her, she was on an uncontrollable rage. She had some anger management issues, and Eballi had to sort that out before putting her on her team. After plenty of therapy sessions and understanding each other, Tala found control and peace. She still gets irritated and has a short temper, but she knows how to control it. Tala calms herself by meditating, doing yoga and or taichi. Eballi and her have a somewhat close bond that was made during the time they were in the tournament.
> Whips, shackles and muzzlers are her HUGE anger triggers.
> She detests Kong most of the time, and refuses to admit that sometimes she appreciates his company.
> In battles she is surprisingly calm and intensely focused. She uses a taichi and relaxed fighting style to surprise foes and turns their power against them.
